Marianthe began painting in 1981. Her first inspiration came when she was first introduced to oils. While spending most of her childhood in Atlanta, Georgia, she was an understudy of two established artists, Anne Jackson and Mark Lucas. As time past,
Marianthe’s inspiration was life itself.
Marianthe had the opportunity to live in Thessaloniki, Greece as a child. As an adult she has lived in Rimpar, Germany and throughout the US. Marianthe has traveled extensively throughout Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Australia, New Zealand, Polynesian Islands, South America, and all over the United States. Through her travels, she was able to study the art of the past and present in various cultures. Marianthe has found inspiration in the various architectural styles, museums and the diverse people she has met during her travels throughout the world. Marianthe has sold her paintings in auctions, art galleries and she paints commissioned pieces for interested clients. Marianthe has received recognition in several community art competitions and at the US Army Forces Command art competition. Marianthe also uses a percentage of her sales to help support Love’s Reach International (www.lovesreach.org) ,a non-profit organization that helps orphans. Marianthe and her Family also show support for Folds of Honor
Most of Marianthe's subject matter consists of memories of her travels, still life, floral and landscapes. Now Marianthe concentrates on her art as it continues to develop and evolve. She hopes to continue to share her interpretation of her life experiences as God reveals each new-inspired day.
